COST: From R5,500


Innovations led by science, technology and entrepreneurship will provide the necessary leverage points to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG),  at the right pace and scale. By addressing the issues of sustainable Oceans economy and Oceans conservation, our event seeks to find solutions linking up to almost all SDGs in addition to SDG14 – Life Below Water.

We depend on our the oceans, and the ocean depends on us. It is crucial that we support the development and adoption of new sustainable ocean solutions, because ocean wealth can only be achieve in conjunction with ocean health; because the ocean economy can be instrumental to post-covid recovery; because the potential for blue growth in Africa is huge but requires people to come together; because we need to inspire more entrepreneurs, entice more private investors and catalyze more partnerships.

Ocean Innovation Africa is a platform that showcases African ocean-impact initiatives and brings together international changemakers for the growth of an equitable and sustainable ocean economy in Africa. The annual summit convenes innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, industry-leaders, and policy-makers from Africa and abroad leading the way in development and adoption of sustainable ocean solutions.

The annual Ocean Innovation Africa pitch competition is an opportunity for Africa ocean-impact startups to showcase their project to the summit’s international audience of investors, innovators, researchers, policy-makers and NGOs.

Six finalists will be selected to pitch their startup enterprise at the event, with cash and in-kind prizes for the winner and runner-up.

To be eligible to enter, startups must:

  • Have direct or indirect impact on ocean health
  • Be based in Africa
  • Be less than 3 years old

Submit your pitch deck and get exposure as a change-maker in the ocean-impact space!
